Ease of Doing Business for MSM Es: Government eMarketplace (GeM) as a platform is extremely conscious about empowering MSMEs, getting them on board on the portal, and making life easier for them, said its Chief Executive Officer Prashant Kumar Singh. “We will not just handhold MSMEs having innovative products or services but also help them in getting business,” Singh said at an event organized by Financial Express Online recently. Launched in August 2016, the Modi government’s public procurement portal has added over 61,000 government organizations and departments as buyers while nearly 47 lakh MSMEs are registered on the portal as sellers. Out of the total sellers, nearly 8 lakh are micro and small sellers with a share of over 55 percent in the order value currently.
